Degree Options

You can choose from either a Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (B.T.A.S.), a Bachelor of Criminal Justice (B.C.J.), or a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (B.S.A.M.).

The B.T.A.S. degree is for students who have an associate degree in a technical field. This degree is ideal for someone who wants to work in management or an administrative position within their technical field such as engineering, electronics, health, business and more!

The B.C.J. degree is intended for students who have already completed an applied associate degree in the criminal justice. Students who earn the B.C.J. will be ready for a career in law enforcement administration, corrections, forensic chemistry, pre-law, probation, and parole, among other career fields.
